The central premise of this book is that the history of American political thought can be understood as a series of conversations and debates. In this expanded third edition featuring a new chapter on 9/11 and the War on Terror, Abbott immerses readers into the politics surrounding ten great crises in our nation’s history. Through the eyes of philosophers, writers, and orators, and the voices of commentators both historical and current, he places political theories in the context of the language and perspectives of those who have struggled to extricate the nation from crisis. Abbott’s engaging style brings the American political experience to life with clarity and vision. Each chapter ends with an insightful author commentary, an updated and comprehensive bibliographical essay, and a list of major works for each period.
